7 Credit rights – The protections put in place by law to help people obtain and maintain credit. Credit responsibilities – The actions or behaviors in which people should engage when they use credit.

8 Your Credit Rights You have the right to see your personal information on credit reports. Organizations that use credit reports are required to help you understand the report. You have the right to have errors in your credit reports corrected. You have the right to know why you were denied credit. If you are denied credit because of something in your credit report, the lender must give you the name, address, and telephone number of the credit bureau that provided the credit report.

9 Your Credit Rights (cont.) You have the right to know who has requested information about your credit history. This information is included in your credit report. Creditors cannot made decisions based on sex, national, origin, marital status, color, race, religion, or age, nor can they ask for this information. Neither the length of the loan, that is, the term, nor the interest rate may be changed for a fixed-rate loan. Lenders must notify you within 30 days of their decision to make a loan to you or not.

10 Your Credit Responsibilities Pay your bills on time. Pay off your credit card balances in full each month. Compare offers for similar types of credit. For example, compare different credit card offers or the cost (fees and interest charges) of a loan from different sources. Make informed choices about credit usage. Know how much you can afford to spend. Keep your receipts for purchases/returns to check against purchases/returns listed on credit card statements. Check monthly statements to make sure charges are correct.

11 Your Credit Responsibilities (cont.) Understand that if a deal sounds to good to be true, it probably is. When you borrow money, know what you are agreeing to. Make certain that you know the interest rate and fees you are paying for a loan and the interest rate and fees associated with any credit card for which you apply. Notify credit card companies and financial institutions immediately when credit cards, debit cards, or checks are lost or stolen. Don't ignore credit problems. Much of your credit history can remain on your credit report for seven years or more.
